that rush limbaugh now has become the voice. of course, that was strategy by obama, the obama administration to focus on rush limbaugh, who while he has many fans also has many people who don't like rush limbaugh or so i think right now there is a fight within the republican party to find its leadership. i think that would be very decisive and important election for republicans. at this point i don't think they can regain control of congress. but if they lose badly in 2010 will see a push within the republican party to turn more moderate. >> the conservative ascendancy came out of 2007. and now you have a new book out. it is cowritten with nancy maclean, the american conservative movement, 1945 to the president. first of all, why did you start in 1945? >> i think modern conservatism really emerges that appeared to have been conservatives before the second world war. it is primarily a modern movement. so that's why we began in 1945. >> but why, what happened in 1945? >> i think primarily the emergence of the communist issue and the cold war. i think it really gave the conservat

saw that we -- we started a radio show and on a lot of stations that have a the limbaugh and a mark of nine who, my god, i think he sold more books so far than the gutenberg bible. i didn't see that incoming. but we decided that we weren't going to choose sides and i was glad to be conservative and say what i believed and callers did not really get that either. into that about a month to figure out that you to run in talk radio show with having a hyper partisan year in and be applied that to our tv show also "morning joe" when it started and is working. the remarkable thing happens when you let people, on your set and you don't scream at them and call them a marxist or a fascist. they want to come back. [laughter] and they tell their friends, you ought to go on the show. and so now we are honored to have great calmness and authors like gail collins and a lot of pulitzer prize winners to come on and we disagree, but it is a civil tom. it is a civil tone. i have gambled, i am a conservative guy, not as much as my dad who thinks nixon got framed, but i'm a conservative guy.

its leaders, rush limbaugh, michael steele, newt gingrich. is it really important that the party or the movement of conservatives have a leader as the findable or is it sort of an open sores that there could be multiple leaders and moldable groups and they will have a ultimately the same effect and turn the country around that would take back the white house and congress over the next few years? who wants to grab that? the in the case of leadership i think there is plenty of time. this time four years ago few americans knew barack obama. there is plenty of time for us to evolve a leader for the next presidential cycle. in the meantime we all is volunteers, we all is that the vista movement have to take a role. we have tulane gates, have to build with tomorrow communities. the problem that i think it's happened in our own movement through the years is that a lot of conservatives went to washington to do good and they did very well. and they stayed and they bought into the system, and they bought into the benefits of the system and of power. we need to return to a movement of activist

the gate was rush limbaugh, and rush understood what it was too opinionated freely on the airwaves when he was in sacramento california he had to live under the fairness doctrine guidelines. when he located in sacramento he told me that it was amazing there was nobody doing political talks and he said this is a cakewalk, what form this is going to be. then he had to succumb to the fairness doctrine by giving an hour of a program to somebody in this community concerned about what he said so he had to move over and he says it was the most boring hour of retial i have ever done in my life and that is what was happening back then. there was no question about it. what we saw immediately was all of a sudden we could put commentators on the radio and have three opinions on the radio. we didn't have to act as moderator's anymore. talk radio was so boring in the 1980's you could report or lost ought or report any kind of matter like that. put it was share your favorite recipes -- there were some good programs. i don't want to denigrate talk radio back in. there was worse williams and sally

was rush limbaugh, and rush fully understood what it was to be able to opinionate. he had to live under the fairness doctrine guidelines when he located in sacramento, he told me that it was amazing that there was nothing doing political talk and he said oh, this is a cakewalk, my word, what fun this is going to be. then he had to succumb to the fairness doctrine by giving an hour of a program to somebody in the community who was concerned about what he said so he had to move over and it was the worst most boring hour of radio i'd ever done in my life and that's what was happening back then. there was no question about it. what we saw immediately was all of a sudden we could put commentators on the radio and have free opinions on the radio. we didn't to have act as moderators anymore. talk radio was so boring in the 1980s you could report your lost dog or you could, you know, report any kind of a matter like that. but it was -- share your favorite recipes. there were some good programs. i don't want to denigrate talk radio back then. there was bruce williamson and sally jessie ral

house correspondents' dinner and wish rush limbaugh did and she gets laughed out, she doesn't lose gabus, even the president of the united states laughs at that so this is the environment we are dealing with. >> guest: it is very hypocritical, and as you noticed rush did not comment on that. he didn't need to. it tells the full story of the far left really wants for america and they don't want conservative views. the heat conservative views and they want to absolutely kill conservative views around america. therefore they allow for the talk-show hosts. >> host: now we are talking about soft censorship. let's talk about this car censorship you write about. do you think this democratic president with big majorities in the congress will go at a full frontal reinstitution of the fairness doctrine or will the approach it from a different angle? >> guest: if they do, they can expect 80 party that is incredulous. laughter, it will be the biggest tea party the nation has ever seen. >> host: you ain't seen nothing yet. >> guest: know, they are not going to go through the front door on this

their ideas do not have to be engaged. one of the most interesting things. rush limbaugh has decided, and i've seen it elsewhere, as well. his listeners are actually better informed according to pure research than average mainstream liberals. and by the way, something else liberals don't know, is that conservatives are more giving in their -- more charitable. there was the guy from syracuse who did a book about it which, in fact, got no attention from the mainstream press because it ran counter to the liberal narrative. >>host: something else curious. there are older than the average audience of liberals. people who are older have a better background in popular culture. they know old books. they read. they came of a culture that did not have as much, a barrage of television. >>guest: that is absolutely true. you are talking about young people by and large. they came of age in a highly politicized educational system. something else we deal with in the book. as one woman said, to despair about the education raunch of and marketing. it does from the exploitation of the indians to slaver
